Topping off Father’s Month here in June, I decided to step back in front of the mic for a solo episode. In this one, I share my 5 biggest realizations in fatherhood thus far – including the difference between rules and boundaries, slowing down for the teachable moments, and the importance of passing on values. I also answered a couple of questions about fatherhood from men in The Rising Man Facebook Group.
